People Living with HIV Stigma Index 2012: Viet Nam

Publications - Released in 2012

HIV-related stigma is recognized both globally and in Viet Nam as a primary barrier to addressing prevention and care issues and ensuring access to essential services. The global Stigma Index study was designed to address the need for a quantitative recording and analysis of the different levels and types of stigma, as well as changes in trends and with time, to inform evidence-based policy and programmes. The process of conducting the Stigma Index is as important as the result: the survey is conducted “by PLHIV, for PLHIV”.
